Advocates Ask Colo. Gov. Polis to Address Immigration Detention

AILA, American Immigration Council, RMIAN, Apr. 13, 2020

"As your administration works to address the crisis created by the coronavirus in Colorado, we write to urge you to take any and all steps possible to compel an orderly but significant reduction in the number of people detained in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody in your state for the reasons described below. While we commend you for the strong actions you have taken to protect the people of Colorado from COVID-19, evidence and recent history suggest that ICE is unwilling to take the sensible steps necessary to preserve public health, and decisive action by your administration is therefore necessary at this time."
